  • WEogether Service Sunday   CROP Walk
    November 3   Tempe Site   10:45 am
    CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty.  CROP Walks are held throughout the country.  Desert Cross is having its own CROP Walk Sunday, November 3.  We're asking the Gilbert Site and the Tempe Site to come together for this great project.  Let's walk together!
    We'll start at Desert Cross Tempe, walk a four-mile route, and return to Desert Cross Tempe.  Each step you take will draw attention to the struggle of poverty around the world.
    Why four miles?  That's the average distance some people walk to get water in some parts of the world.
    Sign up today!  Contact Denise McClellan
    dmcclellan@desertcross.org or 480-730-8600
